“Never was so much owned by so many few” - Winston Churchill
Today we take the time out of our day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice
“Sergeant First Class David J. Todd Jr., age thirty-six of Marrero, Louisiana, died August 20, 2008 in Bala Morghab, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when his unit was attacked while on patrol by enemy forces using small arms fire. He was assigned to the Afghan Regional Security Integration Command-West, Herat, Afghanistan. It was his first Afghanistan deployment.
Sergeant First Class Todd was a husband and father and provided training and care to many others in their quest for improvement and attainment of their personal best. He was a strong advocate for physical fitness and a fitness center is named in his honor. A runner, he was also honored by a run established to honor both him and all fallen heroes.”
